This is certainly one of the cleaner 1940's L-7's we have seen come through the shop. While this was not refinished there is very little play wear anywhere on this guitar.
Maple neck with Brazilian rosewood fingerboard plays like a dream with excellent action and playability. The fingerboard shows minimal wear, but the original frets had some rust/corrosion before we had them sanded and redressed. Without taking too much off of the original frets they are looking considerably better. Back side of neck has de-lamination of the finished through to the heel that is pictured. This is not a crack.
Almost blemish free with exception to two rear bass bout cracks that are no longer moving. The finish is absolutely clean with a very tight weather check pattern.
All hardware is original and in great functional condition. Open back tuners work with ease.
Original Geib case is included in sale. This is very clean and has very little wear. The handle has been replaced.
